The symbols above the numbers on my keyboard just stopped working. Would this be a hardware problem or a technical one. I am using someone else's computer to send this message as I am unable to get into my...
Hi, I'm guessing you have tried using both the left shift and the right shift?.
if one works and the other doesnt I'd say the keyboards stuffed.
If its a funky multimedia keyboard there perhaps may be some key/button to enable/disable shift and or special characters, but I have never seen a keyboard like that.
Do all the numbers and alpha characters work, its just to sybols about 1 to 10?.
This is a wireless keyboard?
Maybe reset the keyboard, normally the base unit and the bottom of the kboard and mouse have a reset/reconnect button, worth a try but I suspect it wont help.
Trying new batteries probably wont help either but probably worth a try.
Failing that, I'd plug in an old usb/ps2 keyboard into your pc and see if that works OK (you'll need to reboot first if its a ps2 keyboard), just to rule out any strange software issues.
All that said however, I suspect you may be looking at a new keyboard.
I do think its worth trying the above first though.
